• A friendly international share house in Tokyo,

    where 9 Japanese & 9 international residents live together

    Tokyo Hearth is a friendly international community, the first spot that you wanna visit in Tokyo!

    Living in Japan can be difficult due to cultural and language barriers - that's why we wanted to create a warm, welcoming "hearth" where everyone can feel at home.
